REFLECTING ON YOUR EXPERIENCES HELPS YOU TO DISTILL OUT VALUES AND IDEAS THAT YOU CAN APPLY CREATIVELY IN YOUR LIFE.
To strive steadfastly, to venture forth fearlessly, to explore all your talents, to render everything, and to become the person that you are capable of being, is to let the self emerge, the essential task of a leader.
When you keep moving from being to doing, in the process of becoming a whole person, you get off to express yourself rather than prove yourself.
To reflect on the past is to learn from it. Reflection embraces thinking back, Journaling and asking for critiques. Reflection takes you through into the heart of a matter and makes you conscious of your inner tendencies, leanings and beliefs. It also unearths the meaning of the past and gets in the resolution of an experience, a clear, effective course of action, an empowering attitude or an idea that you must adopt for greater effectiveness as a leader.
Thinking of the things you look forward to, helps to lift your slump away. When you are free from the pangs of regret over an experience, then you are ready to reflect on the experience.
You can benefit from the potent lessons of your mistakes when you calmly reflect on your experiences, see where you were ineffective, resolve your questions, acknowledge and change your disempowering thoughts, beliefs and attitudes, and then demonstrate the change in physical activity.
The strategic action follows reflection.
Reflection and Resolution thrive in tranquillity.
Reflecting on your experiences helps you to distill out values, concepts and ideas that you can apply creatively in your life. Being buffeted here and there by unresolved emotions, being used by your experiences, makes you a disempowered victim.
